Personal History:

Born on January 30th, 1924 in New York City, Martin was the younger of two children born to an American woman and a German immigrant man. He and his older brother, Lucas, who was 10 when Martin was born, both had different interests and hobbies. Lucas enjoyed to play outside and participate in sports whereas Martin preferred to stay inside and read. Lucas was loud and obnoxious and loved to pick fights with other kids while Martin was quiet and sensible and tried to avoid confrontation as much as possible. While Lucas loved pretending to fire a gun, Martin was more interested in figuring out how a computer worked. Lucas was their father's favorite while Martin was the apple of his mother's eye.
Martin, Lucas, and their family lived a normal life until Lucas turned 18. At that point, he was drafted into the military. Seven years later, World War II was declared and Lucas company was deployed off to Europe. While their parents awaited Lucas' safe return home with bated breath, Martin tried not to worry about his brother too much and focused on his studies. Then, Lucas was killed while fighting in North Africa. Their parents were devastated when news of Lucas' death reached them. Martin was even more devastated, not to mention traumatized. After two years of grief, Martin attempted to honor Lucas while still staying true to his own life. He went to fight with other people in New York's backstreets while at the same time attend college and major in Computing. While in college, he met Johanna, whom he married a year and half later. Johanna soon gave birth to their first and only child, Michael, but unfortunately died during childbirth.
Struck by two deaths in his family, and already fearing a third involving Mike, Martin went into a deep depression. Despite struggling with his depression, Martin managed to finally graduate college. After that, he was soon recruited by the Foundation for his talents. He now, to this day, resides in Site-19.

Miscellaneous:

Although Martin has depression, he tries his best not to let it show when he is around other people. Still, that doesn't mean he is prone to sudden drops in mood. For that reason, he must take prescription antidepressants.
